This isn't about me. I already purchased an iPhone 4. My friend, however is wanting to purchase one as well. He isn't eligible for an upgrade for several months, but his mom (he is on her family plan) is eligible for an upgrade. My question is, if SHE is eligible for an upgrade, and you order the iPhone from Apples website (using her information to get the discounted price), when you get the iPhone in the mail, it shouldn't matter what account it goes to, should it? He should be able to just plug it into iTunes and activate it on HIS account, shouldn't he? I can't see anything that would stop that from happening, and it wouldn't affect his mothers plan or phone either. Or would it? I am the only one on my AT&T account, so I don't really know how that type of thing would work. But from my experience of activating my own iPhones, it seems like it should be able to work that way.
